6:18 am
there is little sun light and very little time out of the cell and no communication with their family. you can see the whole interview at 7:14. the iranian president is in new york to address the united nations. he shocked world leaders and sparked a walk out when he said the u.s. government planned and staged the september 11th terror attacks. the iranian president is stirring up controversy. deja vu news. news you think you heard before because you have. he said most people think the u.s. government staged the attack to assure israel's survival. the comments caused the allegation to walk out of the speech and all 27 european nations followed them as well as representatives from australia, new we will have ant, canada and costa rica. a bay area business that most of us use every day are in the headlines.

6:20 am
he is a human being and i don't think any of us want a book or a movie made about our lives and the source material was angry ex-friends, angry ex-girlfriends and people you knew in college. he was shock and hurt that someone would do this and he had no recourse. since then it has been widely publicized that this is mostly fictional. my hunch is he got over it a bit. >> it is a reminder that if people go to see the movie, this is largely a work of fiction. >> yeah. i was saying earlier i ran into mark's cofounder from the dorm room last weekend in san francisco and hadn't had a chance to talk to him about the movie. he is an interesting person because he is not still at the company and doesn't have the scrutiny that mark and the others do. he was laugh being it. he didn't seem as worked up. i said what's the truth on how fictional it is? he was there from the beginning
6:21 am
with mark and he said 95% fictional. >> start up entrepreneurs are not that interesting. they are smart, but not that movie makingable. >> other than pirates of silicon valley, there is not many movies made about them. when i moved here, it was a lot sexier. mark say pretty boring guy which is why they had to make a fictional movie about him. a real movie would not have been that interesting. >> thanks for being with us here this morning. >> the movie comes out friday, october 1st. >> a lot of people will be checking it out. football players waking up in indiana getting ready to take on notre dame tomorrow. last year the come back against the irish in palo alto. three touchdowns and even threw an 18-year-old touchdown pass

6:23 am
fremont to the top of that grade past washington and get away traffic. keep that in mind. eastbound in the afternoon and westbound again in the morning. that's what we are looking at. 16 minutes and even though it's lighter for a friday, we see the slow down out of the pass and slow over towards north livermore and a break and clearing by the dublin interchange and people towards 680. we have a slow down and speeds below 20 as you pass a through l. speeding up and pitsburg start that burst of slowing around where the bart station is. no delays for that line. we will take you over to the toll plaza where we have a nice flow of traffic. the cash lanes blocking up and no problems for the cash track. the metering lights should be turned on and we will watch for that. right now the delay is because all the toll lanes are open. we will follow the build up and

6:42 am

6:46 am
per meal. it's not enough, but what congress is considering. to pay for that, what the obama administration and propone epts top the do is roll back the benefits they approved last year as part of the stimulus bill. that program would end early in 2013. the extra money would be put towards this. there a lot of people here who have concerns about that, including nearly 100 democrats, unions, teachers, the congressional back caucus not happy about that. what there is a consensus on is this. new standards for schools to get any of that money, schools would have to agree to get the junk food out of not only lunches and breakfast, but vending machines and other events. many districts and states have already done this. this would be a new federal standard for every school in the country. live in washington, i'm tracie
6:47 am
